Today I decided to go back to the gym. I was a little nervous because I took some time off for the holidays. I wasn’t going to go but I decided not to let fear get the best of me. I could’ve just stayed home and plopped down on the couch, but that’s not going to get me back into shape. Continue reading “Use Your Imagination”
I’ve never been one to make NY resolutions as I found it kind of pointless. I was already doing what I wanted to be doing and didn’t need the New Year to remind myself to set goals and achieve them. Having worked at a gym it was a wonder to see hordes of people flood the gym only to vacate the gym by June.
The problem I see with people(including myself) setting goals is that they say they are going do something and then they don’t preserve. I’m horrible at that. It makes people think that you are all talk and no action. “But we can try!” I hear you saying to you device. And to that I’m going to tell you what someone told me.
My doc put a piece of paper in front of me and asked me to try and pick it up. So I picked it up. He then asked me “Did you try to pick it up or did you just pick it up?” I said I picked it up. My point is that Yoda was right when gave Luke that sage advice.
What I am doing this year is that I’m writing down my goals for the year and I’m not going to tell anyone about them until I’m done them. That way you avoid doubters and won’t and will feel more satisfied when you get it done.
Have a Happy New Year!

No matter what it is you want to accomplish, your efforts will be better served by managing your priorities better. If you want to move forward in life and achieve your goals you need to set your priorities straight. Continue reading “Priorities”
I recently discovered that the biggest obstacle I have to overcome in order to achieve my goals is myself. I am my own worst enemy. So far I’ve been trying to take myself one on one. But that was not working out so well. For a long time I thought that I could lose the weight on my own and I have to admit that for me it’s just not a tenable solution.

Lately, I have been really struggling with consistency in my life. I am no saint, I eat junk food and I don’t always exercise. And if you haven’t noticed I haven’t kept up the blog. For that, I apologize.
It is important to remember on your journey to not be afraid of failure. If you want to reach your goals you’ll almost certainly fail along the way. When that happens take note of what happened and why, then dust yourself off and keep going. Failure is an important tool that can teach us more about how to succeed at something just as much as having success does.
In my humble opinion, the most important thing you can do to lose weight is to consistently measure your results. I like to jump on the scale every morning, to start my day. Some other people prefer to step on it once a week.
But wait, there’s more!
